Association of HLA-B*1502 allele and carbamazepine-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome among Indians.
This study suggests an association between HLA-B*1502 and carbamazepine-induced SJS in Indian patients. Expand
The first proof of the capability of wastewater surveillance for COVID-19 in India through the detection of the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2
This study, being the first from India and probably among the first ten reports in the world of gene detection of SARS-CoV-2 in the environmental samples, aims to assist concerned authorities and policymakers to formulate and/or upgrade the COVID-19 surveillance to have an explicit picture of the phase of the pandemic.

High through put 16S rRNA gene-based pyrosequencing analysis of the fecal microbiota of high FCR and low FCR broiler growers
The metagenomic profile of fecal bacteria in birds with high and low feed conversion ratio (FCR) was investigated to identify microbial community linked to low and high FCR by employing high throughput pyrosequencing of 16S rRNA genomic targets. Expand
Genetic variability and bottleneck studies in Zalawadi, Gohilwadi and Surti goat breeds of Gujarat (India) using microsatellites
Non-significant heterozygote excess on the basis of IAM, TPM and SMM models, as revealed from Wilcoxon sign-rank tests, indicated no bottleneck in Zalawadi and Gohilwadi goat populations, whereas mild bottleneck in the recent past for Surti breed. Expand
Molecular characterization of Kenkatha and Gaolao (Bos indicus) cattle breeds using microsatellite markers
There is a substantial shortfall, 21.21% and 22.48%, of heterozygotes in Gaolao and Kenkatha cattle populations, respectively; and little genetic differentiation between the two breeds. Expand
Decay of SARS-CoV-2 RNA along the wastewater treatment outfitted with Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) system evaluated through two sample concentration techniques
The study implies that conventional wastewater treatment systems is effective in SARS-CoV-2 RNA removal, and UASB system significantly reduces Sars-Cov-2 genetic loadings. Expand
Shotgun metagenomic sequencing based microbial diversity assessment of Lasundra hot spring, India
This is the first report on the metagenomic approach for unveiling the microbial diversity of Lasundra hot spring, Gujarat State, India. High-throughput sequencing of community DNA was performed onExpand
Milk microbiome signatures of subclinical mastitis‐affected cattle analysed by shotgun sequencing
Metagenomic analysis of milk samples collected from Kankrej, Gir and crossbred cattle harbouring subclinical mastitis was carried out by next‐generation sequencing 454 GS‐FLX technology to elucidate the microbial community structure of cattle milk. Expand
Genetic characterization of Indian peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV) by sequencing and phylogenetic analysis of fusion protein and nucleoprotein gene segments.
Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is an important viral disease of sheep and goats, endemic in India. The study was undertaken to characterize the local PPRV by sequencing fusion (F) protein andExpand
